V. GARBAUSKO BEE FARM
LITHUANIAN HONEY FOR YOU
Most of the honeybees are in Suvalkija. Beehives are not moved. They are located in the woods, by the edges of fields or in the places where melliferous plants grow. We work with all of the most popular honeybee types in Lithuania: Krajina (Carniolan), Mountain Grey Caucasian, Buckfast, Italian - a selection from Finland.
We always wanted to work with Italian bees. For several years now, we are happy working and finding out the positive qualities of these honeybees. Maybe because we bought the breeder queens selected in Finland. These honeybees – from severe climate – are perfectly adapted to Lithuanian winters.
The breeder queens are purchased from various breeding apiaries.
I have been working with bees from the age of 14 when I got my first beehive as a birthday present. It's been over 40 years since bees have become one of the most important part of my life and I am incredibly happy to continue finding new, more advanced ways of beekeeping.
Animals have always surrounded me in both childhood and adulthood. In the middle of my life, I got to know the incredible life of honeybees... At first carefully, slightly frightfully... But as I noticed that they were fairly friendly, I had let them into my life... And now it is my passion and my business. Queen breeding is a hard, responsible and knowledge-intensive work. However, it is rewarding, soothing and interesting.
We have many clients from Lithuania, but we are also looking for opportunities to develop business relationships with other countries. If you are interested in working with us, we would love to hear from you.
